buy a piano

Post by cherf » 08 Dec 2003, 13:26


I saw a nice piano and want to buy it, could you tell me if the anotations on it would be means anything?

I can read on the top:"Price Medal AWARDET Springscher + Cie. for General Exelence London 1862"

and in it: "Sprecher & Comp. Zürich"

Does 1862 means that it is the date he was made?

Do you if it does be a good piano?

Thank you for your answers,

The 1862 is when it won the Price Medal for General Excellence. They are listed but no serial numbers you should get your local tuner to look at it before you part with any money. as the piano could be anything after 1862 and have allsorts of problems
